BROOKLYN - The MTA announced today that it is adding new services in Brooklyn over the next year, including G train improvements and the restoration of the B37 bus line.

MTA officials say the G train will operate every eight minutes instead of the current 10 minutes from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays starting some time in 2014.

Officials say the expanded service comes on the heels of a recent internal review. They say the G train improvements will allow trains to merge more evenly with the F train and reduce wait times for the more than 51,000 weekday customers.

The bus route will also be restored along Third Avenue, operating between Bay Ridge and the Barclays Center.

Funding for the projects is coming from the state and increased revenues from tolls.
